Team Coaches

My name is Mary Lee Tracy and I have been the president of Cincinnati Gymnastics for over 40 years. My passion is coaching elite athletes and inspiring belief in the people around me. I love coming to CGA everyday, primarily due to my incredible staff, our dedicated elite team, and the support of so many of our parents. I hope CGA offers each of you memories that will last a lifetime!
